UK Footage Shows Animal Cruelty

New footage from the UK group Viva! shows male chicks being killed in egg production facilities.

Undercover footage from UK vegetarian organization Viva! has revealed animal cruelty in egg hatcheries, wherein just-hatched birds are thrown on to a conveyer belt and sorted by sex. The video shows male chicks being killed instantly, while females are kept for laying after having their beaks clipped. Viva! visited two hatcheries in Preston, Lancashire for the footage. “It is a literal conveyor belt to death journeyed each year in Britain by 30 to 40 million animals, and all to bring the morning egg to our table,” Justin Kerswell of Viva! said.
